It has long been said that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Where did this phrase originate? Well…according to the web site phrases.org:
“ Free lunch was a commonplace term in the USA and, to a lesser extent in Britain, from the mid 19th century onward. It wasn’t used to describe handouts of food to the poor and hungry though, it denoted the free food that American saloon keepers used to attract drinkers. For example, this advertisement for a Milwaukee saloon, in The Commercial Advertiser, June 1850:
At The Crescent…
Can be found the choicest of Segars, Wines and Liquors…
N. B. – A free lunch every day at 11 o’clock will be served up.
Free lunches, often cold food but sometimes quite elaborate affairs, were provided for anyone who bought drink.”
Well…at a local favorite diner, Fast Eddie’s…you don’t even need to buy a drink! And it’s not lunch…but breakfast! On September 28, 2010 you can get a hearty breakfast for FREE!
They have old fashioned feel and a good value as well. Hubby and I were here over the weekend and he had his usual favorite…a big burger…while I enjoyed their homemade broccoli cheese soup and a chopped salad. YUM!
